Episode 50 bids goodbye to Benson
2 May 2010 | by kevin olzakSee all my reviews

Episode 50 begins with Billy's rescue from The Sunnies(and Robert Englund's quick exit from the series),followed by a reunion with his family(he tells his mother he communicated with her via telepathy,but when he requested lamb chops,she believes they were cut off).Burt and Saul decide to make their escape from the alien spaceship,if Saul can remember how to operate the beam.Alice,having overheard Jodie's conversation with Mrs.David,packs her bags and heads off to Alaska(Randee Heller makes her final appearance,a regrettable loss).Mary remains exhausted and overwhelmed by the constant attentions of "alien Burt," and confides to her sister her belief that he's not really Burt("I don't mean that he's a different man,I mean that he is another man! It's not Burt at all! Looks like Burt,sounds like Burt,acts like Burt,but I think it isn't Burt!") Benson accepts a position at the Governor's mansion(the Governor being a cousin of Jessica's,one of the Gatlings),and Robert Guillaume moves on to his own series(which lasted for 7 seasons),the single greatest loss for the future of SOAP.
